NORWALK, Conn. — A Norwalk man was charged with sexually assaulting a minor just before the man's wedding in 2015, according to the Hour.
Police told the Hour that a complaint was made in December 2015 by the child's mother and investigated by the Norwalk Police Special Victims Unit. The child said that they had been assaulted by 31-year-old Elvin Orrego, who lived at the same address as the child during the time of the incident, according to the Hour.
One one instance, Orrego had covered the child's mouth and dragged them into his bedroom, but let them go when another resident walked into the house, according to the Hour. Another incident occurred either before or the day of Orrego's wedding, according to the Hour. In that instance, Orrego again grabbed the child and dragged them into his room, where he touched the child inappropriately, the Hour reported.
The child eventually reported the incident to a school social worker, and the mother contacted the police, according to the Hour. Orrego denied the incident when interviewed by police, the Hour reported. A warrant was issued for his arrest, and police had difficulty locating him but eventually made contact with him on Oct. 2 and he turned himself in, according to the Hour.
Orrego was charged with fourth-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor, and held on a $150,000 bond, according to the Hour.
